Stockeld Park's Nordic Ski Trail

Open from 20 October 2017 – 8th January 2018 for our Halloween and Christmas Adventure seasons our Nordic Ski Trail takes a 1.2km path through the magical illuminated Enchanted Forest.

The journey through the Forest is breathtakingly beautiful as it meanders past fantastical illuminated sculptures and around the stunning lake, brought to life by colour changing light effects and new for this year, a dancing illuminated fountain plus other mystery surprises –  a stranded mermaid and can it be a real live crocodile?!


Nordic skiing is great fun and some of the best exercise you can take too! Whether you’re an experienced skier or have never skied, we recommend it for anyone aged 6 and up (although it can be quite tiring for little legs!). The gentle trail is designed to give novices an introduction to the sport, using authentic Nordic ski equipment, and because the track is artificial, there is no reliance on the white stuff!

The Nordic Ski trail is part of Stockeld Park’s  Halloween and Christmas Adventure seasons,  where winter fun is at its nostalgic best. As well as the skiing, visitors can skate on a huge outdoor ice rink, play in the amazing adventure play areas in the Enchanted Forest and explore our Snowflake Maze. Plus, enjoy refreshments in the Woodland Café and even buy a real Christmas Tree to take home.

All children 17 and under should be accompanied by a responsible adult on the ski track or walking along the parallel trail.


*All adventure zone tickets sold separately during our exciting Halloween & Christmas seasons.
